How can i configure squid for a proxy in FC2

I need to tune up my linux to work as a proxy server using squid, and i have to authenticate users, i know there's a file called squid.conf in the /etc/squid/squid.conf that need a modification but i only need to set up some of these lines, the problem is that i donīt know what must i modificate.

If any of you can help me with this problem i would appreciate a lot.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Somebody else jump in if I'm wrong, but it seems as if you have two things to deal with??

Thing One: authenticate users; I would use Samba as a PDC (primary domain controller). It's pretty easy to set up, with tons of documentation at

Thing Two: Proxy Server; I use Dansguardian. It's quite configurable, is easy to set up, and works seamlessly with Squid on your server.

I'm sure there are other ways you could go...

Good Luck
